It's question of best player whether you choose one that has retired or one already active. Since we don't know what the future will bring I'll split it up.

Best Danish Players:

For retired players I would say:
1) Jens Nielsen
2) Heinz Ehlers
3) Jesper Duus

These three played in Sweden before it was even an option for Danish players to go to NA for tryouts (Heinz Ehlers was offered by the Rangers I think, but turned it down).
Jens Nielsen 1987-2004 for Leksand, Malmö, Vesteräs and Rögle.
Heinz Ehlers from 1984-1993 for Leksand, AIK and Rögle.
Jesper Duus from 1987-1996 for Färjestad.

For current players:
It has to be Frans Nielsen based on the career so far and being the first Dane in NHL (not counting Poul Popiel).
